EA’s CEO John Riccitiello confirmed a Wii version of Rock Band is forthcoming during his third quarter conference call done on Jan 31, 2008. In it, he mentioned of a “coming launch” of the Wii version of Rock Band. This is in line with Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos’ mention of a Wii-specific version of the title, way back in April 2007.

No pricing, song list, DLC support nor release date was mentioned.

Rock Band, the game that will have you and two other friends making up a… errr… rock band, will be out on November 23rd in US, for a lower than expected price of USD$169.99 – for the PS3 and Xbox360 versions, while the PS2 version will be your for USD$159.99 come December 10th.

In the bundle will be the game disc, a guitar, a drum kit and a microphone, all the ingredients required for a jam session. Strangely, the Sony’s PS3 and PS2 versions will get you a wireless guitar but not in the Xbox360 bundle.
